Meet Dr. Mark oliverson

I have been practicing dentistry in Salmon, Idaho since 2007. I graduated from Oregon Health Science University in 2006 with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine. I completed a one year Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency from Idaho State University before establishing my practice in Salmon. I believe that continuing education is an important part of improving care for my patients. I frequently attend conferences, courses, and seminars in order to provide patients with the best treatment options and care. 

I love living in Salmon and being part of such a wonderful community. In my free time I enjoy fly fishing and other outdoor activities. I spend as much time as I can with my wife Stacie and our children Erik, Aidan, Isabelle and Sidney. We love spending time together and exploring the beautiful area we live in. I strive to support and serve our community as a member of the Salmon Rotary Club, as a hospital board member for Steele Memorial Medical Center and I am actively engaged in serving within my church organization. 

Our office strives to give patients the perfect balance of modern equipment and techniques with small town friendliness and charm. I want to restore my patients oral health to the best possible form, function and esthetics. As a dentist, my goal is to provide quality, comprehensive care in a comfortable environment, creating a positive dental experience.

Salmon Dental Center Dental Hygienists

Meredith Lapatra

I have worked as a dental hygienist for about 4 years and I couldn't imagine doing anything else! I grew up in Twin Falls and attended Boise State University after high school graduation in 2008. I graduated from Boise state in 2011 with my Associates of Science degree. I then transferred to Idaho State University and graduated in 2013 with my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene. During my off time I take full advantage of the outdoor activities this area has to offer. I love living in Salmon and having the opportunity to serve this wonderful community.

Chris Jones

I graduated from North Hampton College with an Associates of Applied Science and have been practicing as a dental hygienist for over 15 years. When I am not working, I like to explore the beautiful mountains. I enjoy working with the friendly people in this area and taking advantage of all that the Salmon Valley has to offer.  

Lacey Lufkin

I have had the privilege of being part of the Salmon Dental Center team since 2012. Growing up in the Lemhi Valley, I graduated from high school with aspirations to be a dental hygienist. I attended CSI in Twin Falls for 2 years, where I was a member of the college rodeo team. I completed my education at ISU in Pocatello, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. It is very gratifying for me, as a hygienist, to provide care to my patients in a calm and caring atmosphere where their comfort and wellbeing is the main concern. Another passion of mine is family! I cannot spend enough time with my husband Dillon, our son Taysum and our family who live nearby. Whether traveling or just playing at home they make my heart smile! 

alicia wunsch

I have been working in the field of dentistry for over 14 years. I received a Technical Certificate in Dental Assisting from the College of Southern Idaho in 2003. I then graduated from Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyoming with an Associates of Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 2009. I enjoy building a rapport with each patient I see as well as educating patients on how to achieve optimal oral health. I reside in Challis with my husband, two young children and three dogs. In my spare time I enjoy everything the outdoors has to offer from hiking and camping to hunting and fishing.
